Ipswitch File Transfer signs UK value-added distribution deal with Infinigate

Specialist IT security VAD will promote and sell Ipswitch File Transfer’s MOVEit System to UK private enterprises and public sector agencies through its network of expert resellers

Thursday, October 03, 2013 – London, UK – Ipswitch File Transfer, trusted by thousands of companies worldwide to securely manage file transfers, has signed a new UK distribution deal with Infinigate.


Under the partnership, effective as of 1 October 2013, Infinigate will become a lead Value-Added Distributor (VAD) for Ipswitch File Transfer. In this role Infinigate will promote and sell Ipswitch solutions, including the company's Managed File Transfer system, MOVEit and secure FTP software products, WS_FTP Server and WS_FTP Pro to its UK reseller community, as well as private businesses and government organisations. The two companies have a shared objective to recruit new Infinigate security resellers to sell and support Ipswitch File Transfer technology.


Ipswitch File Transfer MOVEit is an award-winning Managed File Transfer system capable of transferring business information reliably and securely, while automating file-based business workflows, and providing employees with an IT-approved solution for all file transfers. MOVEit provides visibility and control over all file transfer activity and allows organisations to confidently meet their service level agreements (SLAs) and compliance requirements.


Infinigate is a full-service VAD, offering a broad range of business services for its reseller community, including marketing campaign design and fulfillment, sales training and support, technical training, product support and other professional services. Its network of SMB and enterprise specialist resellers has a strong focus on security technology. Infinigate will now introduce Ipswitch to its community of Value Added Resellers (VARs). It will also launch a series of value-added services for those VARS, including marketing campaigns, sales initiatives, and the in-depth sales and technical training necessary to support Ipswitch File Transfer and its MOVEit products.


Loic Triger, VP International Sales for Ipswitch File Transfer, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Infinigate. The UK is a strong market for us, with both public and private organisations striving to keep in line with the Data Protection Act and the latest specific industry compliance. The UK Commissioner's Office is taking a firmer interest in UK businesses that don't meet standards, heightening the risk of fines and reputational damage caused by the loss of sensitive data. Infinigate is a recognised leader in UK security solutions, with an impressive understanding of the market and a strong history of delivering compelling security systems that meet the needs of British institutions and businesses."


Murray Pearce, joint managing director of Infinigate, said: "The demand for secure managed file transfer is increasing. Public and private sector organisations need to operate more productively across multiple devices and locations, but must also demand the underlying visibility, control and security precautions necessary to meet stringent internal and industry guidelines. As a leading provider of security solutions in the UK, it is imperative that we only work with vendors that have the most comprehensive and robust solutions available, which is why we chose Ipswitch File Transfer. The MOVEit portfolio fits perfectly into our solution-based approach and product portfolio, and we already have some strong ideas for promoting and increasing traction with our resellers and with the end user community."
